Great staff, great food, great location and great wifi. Pretty much everything is good about this restaurant. It has some real local Tibetan dishes (dumplings) and some Nepalese and Western dishes as well.

Made a brief visit to Thamel and decided we needed some Mo-mos. After asking some of the local proprietors, we found ourselves here and weren't disappointed. Good food, good service and inexpensive.

It is a small restaurant. The restaurant cooks very good momos and noodle Tibetan soup. Service is quite good. Good value for money.
